With the bean occupied with a garishly-coloured mobile toy in his moses basket behind me I thought I should at least briefly check in to say that I haven't completely disappeared! So first of all, thank you all so much for the many well-wishes I got from everyone. I had no idea there were even that many people reading this blog!! At some point in the future I will attempt to answer all the comments (or at least those where I can find an email address) personally, but for now, a big fat THANK YOU to you all. :-)
Secondly, a particular thank you to Sherrill, who sent me a beautiful knitted baby cardigan which the bean has already worn. I still haven't got round to photographing it, but I remember Sherrill posting a picture of it a while back... She also included a pack of baby onesies, which are great! Thank you so much Sherrill!!
Thirdly, another particular thank you to Jane, who sent me a really cute baby hat, which even spells 'BEAN'! Thank you Jane, the hat is great and I am sure we will use it a lot this winter!
I am also aware that I still haven't posted a picture of our little bean, so to make up for that, here he is, big bum and all! ;-)
Other than that, there isn't all that much to report. Life with a brand-new bean continues to be both wonderful and rather hard work. I still don't get more than around 5 hours of interrupted sleep each night, but my body seems to adjust to it, so I don't feel quite as sleep-deprived as I did in the first two weeks. I am also more mobile now, so I have been trying to leave the house most days. The bean is doing great too and has already put on quite a bit of weight. We are starting to get the first smiles now!
There has been some knitting, but not much, so I will save it for a later post.
Right, and now I'm off to get the parcel for the One-Yard-Fabric-Swap ready - last minute as ever!
